Basic Cooking Class – Session 5
April 6 to May 25, 2011
This class will address the importance of basic cooking skills. We will be learning about proper food handling, storage and labeling. We also work towards understanding what it means to have a healthy balanced diet, and how to make healthy choices on a budget.

AND most importantly we will learn how to cook!!!
It is important for everyone to know that having independence in the kitchen is a responsibility, and to ensure that we have the knowledge, skills and tools to make sure it is a great experience each and every time.

The Basic Cooking class is now taking registrations for the fifth session starting April 6, 2011. In the past this course has filled to capacity quickly so if you are interested please contact Crystal at 283-0611 ext 304.

It's been a busy week for training at CASS.

We have added a brand new course titled Values Based Practice which is now mandatory for all CASS employees.

We have also opened up our online training for Occupational Health and Safety, Values Based Practice, and Medication Assistance to non-CASS employees, such as sub-contractors, and respite providers.

For those of you needing to fullfill CASS training requirements, but without a personal login and password to access staff resources on thie website, you may now access our online training

Please note that CASS Employees must log in to the CASS website using their personal login and password and access online training under "Staff Resources". The training page linked to above is strictly for non-CASS employees.

Good luck with your studies!

The CASS website will be undergoing maintenance on Sunday January 30th 2011 from noon to 2pm MST during which time it will be unavailable.

The CASS servers at the main office and the CAES office will be undergoing maintenance on Sunday January 30th 2011 from 2pm to 4pm MST during which time their availability will be intermittent at best, I'd recommend that you do not try to access CASS network resources during this window though you may have some limited success if you need to.

Neither email nor webmail service will be disrupted.

Sorry for any inconvenience,

Kyle

Participants are asked to bring their own snacks, as there will be no lunch break.

Co-ordinators: just so everyone is aware, if you have staff who has never taken a course through CASS before or has let their certification lapse, then they must pay a $60.00 fee for the course. Cheques are fine - payable to CASS. If their first aid certification has not expired then they can participate in a CASS class for free.

Questions concerning the course or your certification must be directed to the co-ordinator.
